Eating Disorders Genetics Initiative (EDGI)

QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute is appealing for Australians aged 18+ who have ever had an eating disorder (including anorexia, bulimia, binge eating) to volunteer for the EDGI Study.

The EDGI Study aims to identify genes that predispose people to these eating disorders. Cracking the genetic code will enable us to develop new, and more effective, personalised treatments that target the problem directly.

If you would like to help us understand eating disorders and identify genes affecting progression and treatment, please participate in the EDGI Study. You can find out more below.
